Whim Hoff- Cold Exposure
"The Iceman," is a Dutch extreme athlete who is known for his ability to withstand extreme cold temperatures, and he has arrived on the scene. In the past couple of years, Whim is taking over the curiosity of many health enthusiasts. If you don't know him, he is uses CHRIOTHERAPY. He purposefully exposes himself to very cold temperatures for extended periods of time. All of this while focusing on BREATHING and overloading the body with fresh oxygen however possible.

Why is it when you are having a panic attack, giving birth, stub your toe, kicked in the.... breathe... just breathe.

Hof's breathing exercises involve a series of rapid and deep breaths, followed by a period of breath holding. Rinse and repeat this cycle. Some consider his methods to be extreme or dangerous, but he has some people changing their outlook on medicine.
